Finally getting around to installing my JB4 into my B9.5 S5 today. I intend on keeping the car stock (other than the JB4).

With that, curious if I should bother installing the BCM plug? Any benefits in doing so? Or risks if not? Also, I assume the ground wire still needs to be connected regardless of the BCM install?

Thanks.

Some customers report faster spool so wont hurt to fit it. Terry has covered the plugging in of it in this video: https://youtu.be/bNP1cy-QOi8

Thanks. Fitting it was a breeze. Overall the entire install was simple and straightforward (outside of running the OBD through the firewall).

One more question. Which Map would be the best for my application (stock B9.5 S5 Sportback w/91 Octane).

Thanks again.

Map 2 is the recommended map for 91.

Running map 5 on S4 B9.5 and only seeing 4.0s to 60.

I run 5 gallons e85
Mid Muffler and resonator removed.
Los Angeles

What are good conservative map 6 settings that I can use without logging? (Haven't been able to log yet since I am using laptop.

You could possibly be spinning on the launch and loosing time. Log it and email logs to me at george@burgertuning.com and I can see if it can be improved.

Hi everyone
I am running map5 (Audi RS5) and. noticed that after a launch control the shifting between first and second gear is not so fast as it should be. Like some kind of torque reducing is happening

Should i reduce the boost in the first gear? Or this should not happen

0-61mph takes 3,46 sek (0-100kmh). But i think it could go faster. Thanks in advance

The time is pretty good relative to traction. It could be catching some wheelspin and reducing first might help. Try make boost cut 1st value 2 and see if it improves the shift. The value entered is how many psi it will cut in the gear.

Hi George! I've had my JB4 installed on my B9 S5 for nearly a year now. It's been great.

I've used map 5 with an E85 mix on 93 a handful of times.

One thing I've always wondered is, can I change from map 5 to map 3 (or any lower map) when I still have the E85 blend in my tank? Will this negatively affect anything?

When running on map 5 with E85 blend, I've always felt that I need to run the tank until nearly empty, and THEN fill up fully on 93 and then immediately switch to a lower map. Is this the case? Or am I assuming wrong?

Hi,

When going down maps it will run fine in any map even stock with a blend in it.
